Roughly. Look, this isn’t an exact science. In fact, it’s not a science at all. It’s more of an art. Well, it’s not that, either. It’s pablum, is what it is.
Samsung introduced some tablets at Mobile World Congress last night. I was there, I listened to the whole thing, and I can’t really tell you much about them other than they exist and they’re technologically advanced.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, slow down, Perfesser.
[writes down] techno-ma-logically advanced
Okay, go ahead.
What swept me up in real emotion…
…was this video of dogs being reunited with their military owners after returning from deployment that’s set to a Regina Spektor song.
Actually, no. That would be understandable.
…was the Korean company’s deal with German pencil maker Staedtler to issue an S Pen styled to look like a classic pencil.
But, that’s it. That’s the whole crux of Savov’s argument here and the only support for the headline’s contention that the Noris digital is 5,000 times more awesome than the Apple Pencil: It looks like an old pencil. Don’t go looking for specifications in the article, there aren’t any.
I’ve never found any great utility in Samsung’s S Pen or Apple’s Pencil…
Okay, well, many people would disagree with you. For reasons that are somewhat more substantive than “this ‘lectronic pencil sure do look like a real pencil.”
…but I feel drawn to this digital pencil that’s built exactly like an analogue pencil because it’s so familiar and intuitive.
